So, I'm doing some research on VCS clustering using Solaris Zones/Containers. Symantec's recommendation is that you keep your zone local to each server in the cluster instead of putting it on shared storage and then allowing VCS to start the appropriate zone and keep control of the IP in VCS's hands (instead of leaving it in the zone configuration). So, both servers in a 2-node cluster will have identical files including full local copies of the Zone. When you want to start zone 1, VCS will boot the zone and then start a cluster controlled IP on that zone. So, what I'm trying to do that I have yet to find info supporting or denying is have application failover as well. I'd like to install my app on shared storage and have VCS not only control the starting and stopping of the Zone, but also the failover of an application on that zone. This way, I can keep the application up while I patch or do other maintenance on the offline node and make sure that the zone is being patched properly as well. EDIT: I forgot this part. Does this make sense? We are trying to consolidate a number of different applications which each run on their own machine onto a cluster running Zones so they still appear to have their own environment.
